Jeb Bush: Obama Hates Capitalism
Jeb Bush has emerged as one of the more sane and reasoned voices on the right, usually by keeping his foot a good distance from his mouth. His modus operandi since leaving office has been to keep a relatively low profile and remain a strong voice for conservatism while not making a buffoonery of the movement by shouting nonsense at the top of his lungs.
Well, until Wednesday at least. Speaking at the tenth U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform Summit, Bush went off topic while responding to an audience member's question and painted President Obama as a capitalism-hater.
From Legal News Line:
"I think President Obama has used the bully pulpit as a way to attack capitalism," he said.
After a pause, he concluded, "That'll make the news."
In other words, Jeb Bush thinks Obama is a giant socialist, and Bush still takes a bit of glee in delivering a politically heated zinger.
